Milan 0-1: Reliever Pulisic and goalkeeper Giroud sent them alone first in Serie A

Christian Pulisic’s 87th minute goal and goalkeeper Olivier Giroud gave Milan a thrilling 1-0 win over Genoa at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium and left them alone at the top of the Serie A table.

Milan almost wasted the first chance in the garbage, but Christian Pulisic in the 87th minute and… goalkeeper Olivier Giroud gave them the victory inside “Luigi Ferraris.” 1-0 against the Genoa In the eighth round of the Italian League.

Stefano Pioli’s gamble with the substitutes did not work out, as Noah Okafor, Samuel Chukwueze and Luka Jovic did not combine for the first part of the match. The positive thing for the “Rossoneri” is that they did not concede at any stage and approached the goal with the Tijani Riders, but Giuseppe Martinez told him “no.”

In the second half, Rafael Leao and Pulisic entered the match, while in the 66th minute Olivier Giroud also entered, with Jovic remaining in the match, as the visitors were desperately searching for a goal. There were chances from both sides, but few of them really mattered.

In the 87th minute, after a cross from the right side by Younes Moussa, Pulisic controlled the ball, turned it with his body, and shot the ball into the net. After checking the VAR for several minutes for a hand, the goal was awarded, but the “Rossoneri” did not calm down. In the fifth minute of stoppage time, Mike Maignan was sent off, and with Pioli making no further substitutions, the Frenchman’s place in goal was taken by Giroud, who kept a clean sheet..
